finding security in benghazi was grossly inadequate to cope with the attack, that washington ignored repeated requests to beef up personnel, and ultimately a lack of transparency, responsiveness and leadership senior levels both this washington and in libya. alise, what do you make of this report. a lot of these findings we've been talking about for a very long time. >> that's right, but also in the last few months, there's been so much politicization of this attack, especially with these talking points and the whole issue of susan rice, ambassador susan rice and what she said about whether there was a protest. this report didn't find that there was a protest, but it also kind of really is the first look at what went wrong, a kind of very sobering look i'd say of what went wrong. and they said that basically the state department and the embassy in libya kind of missed the warning signs that there was an imminent attack coming. there wasn't a specific threat, but a lot of attacks on other western targets that should have been a clue that there was deteriorating security situation and
in chicago and washington d.c. are unconstitutional. the most likely move would be to ban military-style assault rifles, magazines holding numerous bullet. the president has backed such a bill. >> while he supports strongly an assault weapons ban and other measures, he wants to expand the conversation beyond those specific areas of legislation. >> i'm joe manchin -- >> the group of the gun hand -- of the gun ban will be loosened a little. even west virginia senator joe manchin, whose campaign had focused on gun rights, has changed his mind. he is not alone kerpen >> when my daughters ask me on friday night, dad, you are in the senate, why can't we put reasonable restrictions on assault weapons or rapid-fire ammunition clips, i did not have a good answer for them. enough is enough. >> america is in a reflective mood, which may not last. weapons of war should not be available to take the lives of children. >> the white house came out today with steps they would take toward tougher gun control. the national rifle association has released a statement saying they are prepared to offer m
, as tragic as it is, brings us a little closer together both in the nation and in washington, that would be a good thing. >> all right. top of the hour. good morning. 6:00 on the east coast, it's wednesday, december 19th. christmas is almost here. >> very respectful dialogue. the nra had a respectful statement. i think a lot of people showing respect on this. >> feel something may be be happening. >> feel some grown-ups, maybe. there are, of course, exceptions. >> there are a few. we have mike barnicle with us. you're not an exception. beautiful piece in "the daily news" today. we'll read that in must read. thank you very much. former treasury officials. mark ratner is with us as well. he has a must read. i'm serious. >> beautiful. >> also in washington, washington anchor for "bbc world news america" katty kay. >> no pieces, sorry. >> you'll write one next time. thank you. so we've got a lot to get to this morning. >> a lot to talk about today. >> those exceptions, what are you talking about? >> just in the conversation about everything you thought there were two exceptions. >> rick perr
's going on. we've conveyed very frankly, candidly to the chinese in both washington d.c. and beijing in my case. >> in beijing, what is the view that you can tell of kim jong-un about what power he has, who he is, what its capabilities are to stay in north korea? >> the chinese believe we need to give north korea a chance in and develop economically. china would like all the parties that are part of the six party talks to get back to the table and to see if we can't encourage better behavior from north korea as opposed to imposing sanctions now and trying to coerce north korea into the fold and abiding by their international obligations. so that's a difference of opinion as strategy. china believes we have to engage with north korea. the united states does every time to try to engage with north korea, they basically turned around and fail to respond to their promises and live up to promises and it gets us nowhere. we don't believe we should reward bad behavior. he knocked what is the most important thing the chinese leaders want from you everyday? what are they looking for? >> they want gr
retirement benefits imaginable, they have come here to washington, d.c., to tell congress that we should cut social security benefits for disabled veterans, raise taxes on low-income workers. so let me just tell you what some call a tweak would do. in terms of the chained c.p.i., more than 3.2 million disabled veterans receive disability compensation from the veterans administration. 3.2 million veterans, they would see a reduction, a significant reduction in their benefits. under the chained c.p.i., a disabled veteran who started receiving v.a. disability benefits at age 30 would have their benefits cut by more than $1,400 at age 45, $2,300 at age 55 and $3,200 at age 65. does anybody in their right mind think that the american people want to see benefits cut for men and women who sacrificed, who lost limbs defending their country? are we going to balance the budget on their backs? i challenge anyone who supports a chained c.p.i. to go to walter reed hospital, visit with the men and women who have lost their legs, lost their arms, lost their eyesight as a result of their service in afghanis
in "the washington post" today, it was very striking to note that for the first time when people have been askedhis question after -- and they have been asked it after a series of acts of mass violence, columbine, virginia tech, et cetera, aurora, do you think that this was an isolated act or does it say something about more troubling conditions in our society? i'm paraphrasing. for the first time. every other time people said it was an isolated act of a madman or mad people. this time they said it reflects a deeper problem in our society, and i believe what causes that change is that 20 of the victims in newtown, connecticut, were young children, and there is not only a heartbreak across our country about this, not only anger, but i think there is guilt, and we all ought to feel guilty because as a society what the attacks in newtown said to us is that we have failed to fulfill what would seem to be our most natural, natural law, if you will, responsibility, which is to protect the safety and lives of our children. so i hope we will act. there will be no better tribute, no better source o
thread, gretawire.com, good night from washington. mr. bill o'reilley >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight -- >> the assault weapon is developed for military purposes to kill in close combat. >> bill: as we predicted, semiautomatic weapons are now under fire. pardon the pun. will congress ban them? charles krauthammer and i will discuss it. >> he is not a gun runner and you know. he should be released immediately. >> bill: with seven days until christmas, will the mexican government release marine corporal jon hammer from prison? this is a terrible miscarriage of justice. and president obama should get involved. we'll have the latest from the corporal's parents. >> i know what you're thinking. did he fire six shots or only five? ask yourself one question, do i feel lucky? >> bill: do you recall tradition violent movies and video games incite psychopaths to commit crimes. quentin terrentino and jamie fox are under pressure. we'll tell you what's going on. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks f
as washington welcomes a high-level chinese delegation led by the vice premier. his team is in the u.s. to talk trade and economy. he's expected to meet with u.s. treasury secretary tim geithner tomorrow. wang is the first official from the new leadership team to visit with the u.s. for more on the impact and implications of this, let's speak with frank ching, adjunct associate professor at the chinese university of hong kong. frank, hi. the first news that we're getting out of this appears to be more import duties s. this going to be the theme of u.s./china relations, or do you expect these meetings to be more of a thaw? >> well, i think that these are the first meetings since the new leadership in china was installed. and since president obama saw -- well, won second term. i think both sides want to make use of this occasion to improve their relationship. so this joint annual meeting is a platform, and i think that they will probably be able to achieve some progress on issues of concern to both sides. but i don't see any sweeping changes. >> what's interesting, frank, and you point this out,
for the top story, how will the connecticut mass murder affect public policy? joining us from washington, fox news political analyst, charles krauthammer. all right, assault weapons number one. but this is going to run into party politics and i think both parties now noe it. so the american public very emotional now. that's going to die down a little bit. but the issue is very emotional and the democrats are going to come in and they're going to try to get as much hand gun legislation and assault rifle legislation as they can. is that the way you see? >> i think that's right. there are people who want to use this as a partisan, who scapegoat the nra to one over one side of the argument. i think one way to get around that is to too what joe lieberman suggested, appoint a commission, not to put it off indefinitely. we had a commission after 9-11. because there is going to be a rush to judgment on this. i think it's likely that we're going to pass weapons laws that will be completely useless and i think it would be far better to appoint a commission to report in three months, six months, maybe l
